Harry Reid: Democrats Will Take Senate Majority

("The Cats Roundtable"/AM 970 The Answer)

By    |   Sunday, 01 May 2016 11:17 PM EDT

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid vows that a Democratic takeover of the Senate is fairly certain in the November elections.

Speaking on "The Cats Roundtable" Sunday radio show on AM 970 New York hosted by John Catsimatidis, Reid pointed out that his party only needs four seats to secure a majority.

Discussing the race for president, Reid said he was confident that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton would win the party's nomination and then the general election. He stressed her intelligence and ability to grasp the issues on a wide variety of subjects.

Reid harshly criticized Republican front-runner Donald Trump, saying that he "can't imagine how the establishment Republicans feel about somebody who’s about as far from anything that anyone believes in as Donald Trump. I can’t imagine this man being the nominee for any political party, let alone the Republican Party ... How he denigrates women and people who have handicaps."

Reid confirmed that he will not run again for his seat and said that New York Sen. Chuck Schumer will be the next Democratic leader of the Senate.

Reid has been in Congress since 1983 but said he decided to retire at the end of this term due to an injury he suffered in January 2015 that caused him vision problems.
